. >> gloria borger, do the john mccain and lindsay grahams, do they have a point? this is serious policy. they are talking and saying look, i don't know if this could be someone anti-american or against the president or shoots an e-mail to his cousin in the mideast and all of a sudden, red flags start flying and the government wants to take this person out without due process and saying that's not okay. do they have a valid point there? >> i think what the point was the way i was hearing it, don't belittle the real issue. everybody knows the laws and the president of the united states is not going to drop a drone on somebody sitting at a cafe who happens to have a cousin somewhere. holder gave rand paul the answer to his specific question. if a person is not an enemy combata combatant, nobody is going to drop a drone on them at a cafe in houston. i think what they are saying is that there is a transparency question here. we need to know the legal arguments and who decides how they decide and we need to know when they make mistakes and how to correct them. maybe the people on the i

to do. >> not necessarily john mccain out on the senate floor really going after senator rand paul, some of the remarks he made during his filibuster yesterday. >> i don't think what happened yesterday is helpful to the american people. but somehow to allege that the united states of america, our government would drop a drone he will. l-fire missile on jane fonda, that is -- that brings the conversation a serious discussion about u.s. policy to the realm of the ridiculous. >> you want to respond to senator mccain? >> wolf, i'm an admirer of john mccain. he's a special friend to nancy and i. i can tell you that this debate is not essentially about jane fonda. it's about the fact that the very nature of warfare is changing and it's changing so dramatically and we are now going to have to think through a new set of rules and a new set of approaches. for example, i have very strong beliefs and we shouldn't be practicing secret law until we won our two-year campaign -- i made seven requests of the obama administration to get the legal analyses behind these drone strikes. we were essenti

, the filibuster was a grand symbolic gesture versus camera time. and john mccain did not make that point. the only thing missing is the word meddling. he is a scooby doo villain and he was exposed. it was kind of embarrassing. >> scooby doo villains are young people. >> i find them to be cranky and they mutter. they mutter something fierce. >> it as a typical stereo type from those who are with the people in the van. >> i am with butterfly collars and free love, man. all of these are doing nothing but bad stuff. they are ghost and goblins and what have you. >> i watched most of the filibuster -- not really, but two hours when i came home, and i thought it was pretty impressive what he did. what was really impressive was how he was able to reach beyond the limitations that most people have when they are standing for hours. meaning where did he take a leak? there is tape on this from the glen beck show. >> i did think about it. i put them in and i decided against it. >> the producers are saying make sure you are talking and he is talking about a catheter. thank you. that was a joke.

. rand paul's cia filibuster gets slammed by john mccain. is objecting to your government or objecting to the policy of government sympathizing with the enemy? some openly were sympathetic. no one will ever forget jane fonda swiveling around in north vietnamese armored guns, and it was despicable. it's one thing if you want to try her for treason, but are you going to just drop a drone hell fire missile on jane fonda? >> somehow to allege that the united states of america, our government, would drop a drone hell fire missile on jane fonda, that -- that is -- that brings the conversation from a serious discussion about u.s. policy to the realm of the ridiculous. >> so rand paul now let the senate confirm the cia director? stay tuned. and is this the beginning of a beautiful friendship? president obama invites paul ryan to the white house for lunch after dining with senate republicans at the jefferson hotel. swanky too. >> how did the meeting go? >> just fine. great. wonderful. >> i am more optimistic just from a personal standpoint. >> senator bob corker was at that dinner. what sde thi

football game. this is people's lives. they moved the football. i see john mccain, with a picture of snoopy and they're moving the football with charlie brown. this is crazy. the republicans don't work with the democrats. they did not work with bush. we went to war. but the democrats voted to go to war, too. the country is at 122 trillion dollars of unfunded debt. $885 billion in medicaid, social security its 16 billion. $100 trillion in the debt. we only bring into $0.40 trillion in gross revenue -- $2.4 trillion. we need to get together as a people. i agree with the lady who called the last time to say that the president is being insulted. i've been called a racist because i don't want to see a government that lives outside its means and i don't want to see the country spending my daughter's future away. host: on twitter -- a few other headlines this morning -- rand paul, the kentucky senator, has gotten some good headlines from his filibuster on the senate floor. here it is from the baltimore sun, the lead editorial this morning -- also, this from the "washington times this mornin

senator john mccain talking about his opposition to rand paul's drone filibuster in the senate this week. for more on that and the president's gop outrage, i'm joined by political reporter for "the washington post," aaron blake and staff writer alease. good morning. >> good morning. >> let's begin with rand paul talking about john mccain. >> i treat senator mccain with respected. i don't think i always get the same in return. >> so, aaron, why did mccain and lindsey graham attack him on the senate floor? didn't it hurt mccain and graham? >> it might. i think this is an area where graham and mccain have a very significant policy difference with rand paul and a lot of the new republicans who are joining the senate these days. at the same time, i think this is an issue -- you know, the rand paul filibuster got a lot of attention because it was fascinating this guy was talking for 13 hours. it wasn't necessarily that people in the republican party were embracing his message, so to speak. so, you know, i think the republican party is very much split on this issue but i don't think it's a
